Description

This will be a workshop in arithmetic and algebraic geometry, similar to the previous iteration (https://stacks.github.io/2017/). The intended participant is a graduate student, or a postdoc, or even a senior researcher. You will work on a single topic in a small group together with a mentor for a week with the aim of producing a text that will be considered for inclusion in the Stacks Project. Part of this process will be seeing how one builds new theory from the foundations. There will also be one or two talks per day covering advanced topics in arithmetic or algebraic geometry.

The Stacks project workshop will have some optional activities you won't see at other workshops. Adding references to and finding mistakes in the Stacks Project (and fixing them) as well as activities related to LaTeX use, Git, and GitHub. Overall these will be aimed at helping you contribute efficiently to the Stacks Project.
